that today the fbi retrieved a dna sample from tamerlan tsarnaev's widow katherine russell, at her parents' home in rhode island. just because they took a dna sample and even if hers should match the sample o the pressure cooker, it doesn't necessarily implicate her or any other particular female in terms of whether they had anything to do with the preparation or the construction of the bomb because, for obvious reasons, our sources caution us that it could also mean that a female at any time could have come into contact with any portion of the bomb maybe even before this pressure cooker was even put together. a wide range of people. so it could involve perhaps, if it's not her dna, it could be possibly her daughter's dna. that match has not yet been made. or it could belong to somebody else all together. but certainly, erin it does move this case forward. >> it certainly does. we'll find out a lot more. susan said obviously, significant development. but if it is the wife's dna, is it possible she wasn't involved? we'll talk more about that with a forensic exp
